LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Construction is now complete for a new single-family home built by the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity.

The organization will dedicate the home on Saturday, March 16 at the former site of the Lakewood Day Nursery. The building lay dormant for several years before it was demolished in 2010 and donated to Habitat for Humanity in 2012 through its HOME Investment Partnership Program.

The home was primarily built by volunteers on Dowd Avenue in the Birdtown Neighborhood. It will be dedicated at 11 a.m. and given to the Stuart-Galvin family.

Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity has built more than 160 homes since 1988. Today, the organization has more than 2,000 volunteers providing more than 70,000 hours of service every year.
